Wireless connections are less than perfect on the boat

Posted By on December 8, 2011

A few days of travel away from decent Internet connections has me appreciating beaconwifilogomy questionable home cable Internet connection (either Time Warner OR my internal network isn’t perfect). I ran a few tests of both the marina BeaconWi-fi and my tethered Sprint Palm Pre and have come to the conclusion that I need to treat it like a hotel … daytime connections on the marina wifi are fine, but during the evening I need to switch to my tethered Palm Pre cellphone.
